Remote sensing technology extracts information about the earth resources from satellite imagery. The elevated objects are the reason for the appearance of shadows. Shadows are created as the light source has been blocked by something. Shadows degrade the quality of images or it may affect the information provided by them. Thus for the correct image interpretation it is important to detect shadow regions and restore their information. Significant researches has been going on in finding the best
